Lamar Jackson made waves on The Rich Eisen show Wednesday when he said that opposing defenses know the Ravens’ plays before they’re called.

In his interview with Eisen, Jackson said that he’ll get to the line of scrimmage and hear defenses calling out opposing plays before they’re run.

Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman was informed of those comments, and promptly explained that it is just a way of life in the NFL with defenses calling out plays.

“Calling out plays on the defense is nothing new,” Roman said Thursday, according to ESPN. “They’re going to be right sometimes [and] they’re going to be wrong sometimes. I think we know that. But that’s definitely an element of the game. It always has been and probably always will be.”

Jackson, through eight games this season, has thrown for 12 touchdowns and four interceptions with an average of 189.1 yards passing per game.

His numbers have taken a dip from a year ago, when he threw 36 touchdown passes compared to six interceptions.
